Town Center Community Alliance 2018-08-09T19:59:11+00:00

The mission of the Town Center Community Alliance is to improve the environment and enhance the quality of life in the Town Center area through public greenspace and trail projects, community education, programming and district beautification.

Town Center Community Alliance

In 2015, the Town Center Community Improvement District created the Town Center Community Alliance to look beyond infrastructure to create a “heart and soul” for the district by engaging partners to support greenspace and beautification projects in the district. The Alliance is also enhancing quality of life for residents and visitors through education, programs and services, such as the Town Center Zagster Bike Share program.

The Alliance, as its own nonprofit entity, can benefit from a more diverse range of contributions and leverage the TCCID’s early investment in the Noonday Creek Trail, Aviation Park and Bells Ferry Trailhead.

The Alliance’s focus is on large scope, place-making initiatives identified in the Town Center Master Plan, such as Town Center Park and the seven-mile Town Center Trail Loop system.

The Alliance may accept tax-deductible donations from anyone in or outside the district, and may be used in beneficial projects in or outside the TCCID’s 6.25-mile boundary area.

Zagster Town Center Bike Share Program

The first CID-sponsored bike share program in the state, the Zagster Bike Share program allows you to rent a bike to run errands, get exercise, or enjoy outdoor recreation on the District’s scenic trails. The first hour of rides is always free and riders can easily access and rent bikes using the Zagster app. The vision of this program is to utilize additional bike stations to connect Cobb trails through the Cobb Greenway Project and eventually to trails in Cherokee and Fulton, including the Atlanta BeltLine.

Aviation Park

Aviation Park is a $2.7 million, three-acre, aviation-themed park located at Barrett Lakes Boulevard and Cobb Place Boulevard, adjacent to the Cobb International Airport runway and approximately midpoint along the Noonday Creek Trail. The park features an aviation-themed playground with STEM technology, educational and artistic elements celebrating Cobb County’s rich history in aviation, viewing areas for airplane take offs and landings, and an expanded Zagster station with ten bikes that is easily accessible for park and trail visitors.
